PHILADELPHIA -

Michael Vick will start Philadelphia's final preseason game because the Eagles are resting their starters.

Coach Andy Reid says Vick will play the first half against the New York Jets on Thursday night. Rookie Mike Kafka is slated to play the second half. Kevin Kolb will be on the sideline.

Vick, a three-time Pro Bowl quarterback with Atlanta, hasn't started since Dec. 31, 2006.

Dolphins' practice field has hidden gem

DAVIE - Several Miami Dolphins players crawled across the grass after practice Tuesday - not due to exhaustion, but because they were looking for a diamond earring.

Defensive end Kendall Langford said he forgot to take his earrings out before practice and lost one of them during drills. He said the diamond was nearly 2.5 carats, which is why he was still on the field an hour after practice scanning the grass.

One jewelry distributor said the earring could be worth more than $50,000.

BROWNS: Nose tackle Shaun Rogers will not be suspended by the NFL for carrying a loaded gun into an airport.

The league said Rogers will be fined a one-game check - roughly $400,000 - for violating its personal conduct policy.

CARDINALS: Derek Anderson will start at quarterback again for Arizona when the Cardinals play Washington on Thursday.

COWBOYS: Third-stringer Stephen McGee will be the starting quarterback against the Miami Dolphins.

JETS: Waived quarterback Kevin O'Connell, clearing the way for Kellen Clemens to make the team as the No. 3 quarterback.

Clemens signed a new deal Tuesday morning, restructuring his $1.1 million tender and taking a pay cut while securing his spot on the roster.

REDSKINS: Placed Malcolm Kelly on injured reserve.

REQUEST REJECTED: Former New York Giants Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress lost a bid for work release from his two-year prison sentence in a gun case.

The New York state Department of Correctional Services said it had turned down the wide receiver's request. It's his second since he started serving his sentence last September.

TRADE: The Seattle Seahawks traded starting cornerback Josh Wilson to the Baltimore Ravens for a conditional 2011 draft pick.
